Cleaning Out My Closet For Spring

A few weeks ago I shared a couple of photos, on Instagram, hinting that I was in the middle of spring cleaning my main closet and switching out fall/winter clothes for spring/summer clothes. I figured I'd share the end result with you today.

The first thing I did was empty out the closet and clean it, making sure to get all the dust bunnies to vacate the premises. Then I went through and separated out the cold weather clothes. Lets be honest. I live in the Central Valley California, other than a few thick sweaters, scarves, and a few pairs of boots, there's not much to my cold weather clothing. But I did remove the darker colored clothes from the closet and added in my brighter clothes. 

While I was at it I went through everything and made piles for donation and trash. The trash pile is on the left and the donations are on the right.

Then it was time to store away my winter clothes.

 I use two canvas bags that slide under the bed to store everything and the packing paper is to stuff my boots.

This is why I had packing paper for my boots. If I were to store my boots like this until next winter they would be disfigured when I pull them out.

So after they are cleaned I stuff to maintain their original shape. Now they are ready for the summertime slumber.

Here they are all packed and ready for storage under the bed.

Now lets look at the cleaned out closet.

The top box contains a few hats and the bottom box has my bikinis and beach coverups.

I need to replenish my supply, I got rid of 6 pairs of shoes

The left side is so hard to photograph.

Flip flops are just waiting to make a reappearance for 2015.

While I was at I decided to tidy up my dresser drawers too. Top drawer has my undergarments and sleepwear.

Middle drawer has t-shirts, tank tops and lightweight sweaters.

Bottom drawer has all my workout gear.

Side note: Did anyone else notice the abnormal amount of black or black and white I have in my wardrobe? Seriously people it's an obsession, I need therapy. I think it comes from my modeling days when the mentality was, "black makes you look thin." But I have friend that's a personal shopper and she's been working with me on adding splashes of color through my shirts and scarves.

Anyway I digress... have you done any spring cleaning yet?

A Quick Revisit To The Master Bedroom

Good day all!

It seems that as of late I have been all consumed with everything related to planners (hopefully you don't mind too much) but I thought it was time to get back our regularly scheduled program. What better way to do that than by revisiting one of my previous post. I thought I would share the place where I lay my head at night, the master bedroom, with you since I have a few new followers that may not have seen the space.

There are so many elements in this room that I love, I would be hard pressed to narrow it down to one thing. The room is filled with little moments that make me smile before turning off the lights and closing my eyes at night. All the personal touches that represent everything that's important to us.

Because we all lead very busy lives, I've tried to keep the feel of the room very tranquil, using shades of white, cream, brown, and accents of turquoise. On the bed, I only use white or ivory sheets to keep with the spa-like feeling. I love pulling back the comforter and crawling between the sheets and feeling the cold crisp sheets against my skin. There's nothing I look forward to more than getting into my bed, made with a set freshly laundered sheets, and falling asleep. 

Since, spring is now here and it's time to switch out our winter bedding for the summer bedding, I'm thinking of getting a new set of sheets for the warmer weather. Honestly, I'm always on the hunt for quality bedding because this Cal-King of ours is not cheap to outfit. Lately, I've been perusing Parachute bedding looking for our next set. I have spied a few on there that I can't wait to take for a test drive. I'll let you know how it goes. May the odds be ever in my favor! 

Till next time...

Planner Series Part 2 and New Planner Layout!!!!

Good day to ya! I'm back with part 2 of my planner series. This video will take you into the last three planners I use, my everyday planner, my blog planner, and spiritual planner; which is more of a journal. 

Enjoy the video!

But before I let you go, I had been hinting that I was working on a new 2015 planner layout on my Instagram account and today it's finally available for download. It's just so sweet and girly, truly my favorite layout to date. Let's call it my 2015 Ribbon Planner. Starting with the month of March, since January and February are long gone, the monthly view keeps the same layout including the love quotes at the bottom. However, this planner features softer pastel colors and more "white space" than my last planner, which will save ink for those of us printing at home.

The week on two pages view has a completely different layout with the days of the week typed into multi-colored hearts. But it also featuring more "white space" for us to save ink at home. Eeek! I just love it!
